Lake Erie

Jack Britt Memorial Stadium

Since its inception in 2007, the Lake Erie football team has played its home games at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium, which is also the home of the Harvey High School Red Raiders. "The Britt" hosted the first varsity football contest in Lake Erie College history on Aug. 28, 2009, against Gannon University. After replacement of the visiting bleachers prior to the 2011 season, current seating capacity for the stadium is 3,000, with standing-room capacity over 5,000.

Both institutions have partnered with the City of Painesville to update the stadium. Renovations in 2008 included $100,000 worth of updated locker room and training facilities by the College and an updated press box, paved parking area and updated restroom facilities completed by the city.

In early 2010 the partnership announced plans for the installation of a synthetic playing surface on the current site, which allowed for increased usage of the facility and provided Storm student-athletes with one of the finest playing surfaces in the country. The new turf, a Prograss Monofilament surface with sand and rubber infill, was installed in 2010 and replaced in 2019. Additionally the press box was upgraded in 2019 with new speakers and a complete interior makeover.

Storm soccer and lacrosse teams also host games at Britt Stadium. The 2010-11 season was the first that those teams used the facility as their primary site for home contests. Previously the men's and women's lacrosse teams played at Perry High School's Alumni Stadium and the soccer teams used Slattery Field on campus exclusively.
